The above essay is well-known to "Dixie" scholars.
However, check out the "United States Mail, or Dixie in Difficulties" cite
from July 10, 1850 (Portsmouth, NH) in the new "American Broadsides and
Ephemera, Series I. Nice stuff, now available in the New York Public Library.  The
NYPL still doesn't get America's Historical Newspapers 1690-1922 yet (just
Series I of that).
